Buy this book together with Word of Tree and Whisper of Stone, and other papers on Ugaritian thought by Nicolas Wyatt
This study focuses on the imagery of meals and feasting in the Baal Myth and Kirta and Aqhat epics. Utilizing contemporary approaches to ritual, these meal events reveal the manner in which ritual behavior described and defined the different social relationships with the Ugaritic pantheon and the interactions between the divine and mortal realms. This study demonstrates the role successful ritual behavior played in the organization and presentation of characters within the narratives, as well as the role of unsuccessful or failed rituals associated with the meal event, which resulted in social chaos and confusion. +This volume is a collection of selected essays on specific themes in Ugaritic literature. Included are eight unique contributions to understanding the religious life and thought of Ugarit, including detailed studies and essays covering broader issues for grasping the worldview of ancient Syria.Save $53.65

Lesser Deities in the Ugaritic Texts and the Hebrew Bible by Sang Youl Cho
A comparative work on the nature and various roles of the lesser deities, the so-called angels, in the Ugaritic texts and the Hebrew Bible. Sang Youl Cho insists on the necessity for a comparative study between the two religious literatures from Ugarit and ancient Israel. The present study is interested in their membership in the heavenly council, their kinship among the deities, and their roles such as messengers, warriors, mediators, or servants, which have numerous similarities in the Ugaritic texts and the Old Testament.

The Archaeology of Cult in Middle Bronze Age Canaan by Jill Katz

This volume presents a theoretical model for identifying ritual behavior in the archaeological record, providing a test case using the rich material culture and structures that have been unearthed at the biblical city of Gerar (Tel Haror, Israel).

The Qatal//Yiqtol (Yiqtol//Qatal) Verbal Sequence in Semitic Couplets by Silviu Tatu
The book investigates the qatal//yiqtol (yiqtol//qatal) verbal sequence, previously known as ‘tense shifting’, as found in couplets of the Hebrew Psalter, attempting an innovatory explanation by means of M.A.K. Halliday’s Systemic Theory. This study argues that qatal and yiqtol verbal forms, when part of the qatal//yiqtol verbal sequence in Psalms' poetic couplets, can be used primarily for aesthetic reasons, with no individual reference to time or aspect. Arguably, the Systemic Functional Grammar analysis of lexicogrammar can provide a comprehensive interpretation of form and function and an integrated approach to phonetics, morphology and syntax.

The Ethics of Violence in the Story of Aqhat by Chloe Sun
An examination of the ethics of violence in the Ugaritic story of Aqhat using the conventions of characterization and the conflicting points of view. The points of view of the divine characters El, Baal, Anat, Yatpan, are contrasted with the points of view of the human characters, Aqhat, Dan'il and Pughat, in order to bring out the multi-dimensional aspect of Anat's violence.

The mythological texts of Ugarit have long been of interest to the scholarly world. The rich imagery within these narratives have captured the attention of many, and have been the source of important studies, not just to Ugaritic studies, but to ancient Near Eastern and biblical scholarship as well. This study continues in this tradition by focusing on the imagery of meals and feasting as recorded in the Baal Myth and Kirta and Aqhat epics. By utilizing contemporary approaches to ritual these meal events are examined revealing the manner in which ritual behavior described and defined the different social relationships with the Ugaritic pantheon and the interactions between the divine and mortal realms. In particular, this study will demonstrate the role successful ritual behavior may have played in the organization and presentation of characters within the narratives, as well the role of unsuccessful or failed rituals associated with the meal event, which resulted in greater social chaos and confusion. In so doing, the author posits that one can gain insight into the manner in which Ugaritians believed they could relate with the divine.



Dan Belnap earned his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago in 2007. He is currently an Assistant Professor at Brigham Young University.
